Terry Gray – Head Coach
Gymnastics has been a very important part of Terry’s life for over 30 years. As a youngster, her parents owned a small club in Ohio where she began her gymnastics career. When her competitive career ended, she was not ready to leave the sport that had been such a big part of her life. While attending Kent State University she became an assistant coach for the women’s team alongside Head Coach Brice Biggin. She also began coaching at a small club where she trained the girl’s team. Within a couple of years, Terry knew what she wanted to do. In September of 1995, she opened up FLYTZ USA Gymnastics Inc. It was only a short time later that they became the premier club in Northern Ohio. Then, in 1999, Tracy joined Mary Lee Tracy for two years in Cincinnati where she helped train some of the biggest names in the sport; these included Kim Zmeskal and Dominique Moceanu. Terry sold her gym in 2005 and moved out to Las Vegas. She loves that it never rains here, especially after living in Ohio, where it rains all the time. She feels very fortunate to have been surrounded by some amazing athletes, coaches, and parents throughout her gymnastics career. Even though she has already had a great deal of success and fun memories, she looks forward to creating many more with the athletes, coaches, and parents of Brown’s Gymnastics Las Vegas.
